Summer 2016 Humanities Internships
Each year the College of Arts and Sciences and CURF fund approximately twenty-five summer research internships as part of a summer institute for University of Pennsylvania students in the humanities and social sciences. Internships provide undergraduate students with an apprentice position in a cultural, historical, or archival setting. Unless otherwise noted, these full-time (30 hrs/week) internships are for a period of up to ten weeks and include a stipend of $3,300. The stipend will be paid in two equal installments on June 30 and August 31.
December 2nd 5:30-6:30pm
Fireside Lounge, 2nd Floor, ARCH Building
Come meet former internship recipients and hear about their experiences—from the application process to the impact the program has had on their future plans—and learn how you can apply for one of these coveted positions. Light refreshments will be served. Email email@example.com to RSVP.
All applicants must be current students in the College and members in good standing of the University of Pennsylvania community. Students graduating in Spring 2015 or Fall 2016 are not eligible for this funding.
Applications are due 4:00 PM, February 10, 2016.
